Y'all better not move to Florida then. 90% of everything around here would probably give you nightmares. I have a golden orb spider with a body the size of my thumb and a web about 2' in diameter living on our garage eave. I have affectionately named him Boris . ( Who fans know what I'm talking about)

Also got a black coachwhip about 2-1/2' long living under our backyard deck. (don't tell my wife) Gotta love those black snakes, shiny black and fast as hell. They kill rattlesnakes, so he can stay there and earn his keep.

Oh yeah, forgot about the gators and sharks.. enjoy our beaches guys...

Ours seems to fit ok, just just to be pretty close to the pump so there's some slack in the hose. If you are too far from the pump it's more difficult.

LOL.. It's usually not a problem.. I guess it's just what you get used to. A little common sense and respect goes a long way in staying out of the hospital.

I have a long and colorful history of an irrational fear of those eight-legged freaks!

And it all originates from a perfectly logical occurence!

I was about two years old, and at our local hunting camp picnic. It is held every year on the second Sunday in September...
It used to be held on my Grampa's old farm property. The adults would shoot trap and tell hunting stories, and all of us kids would run around in the woods.
Everybody would get together at Dinnertime, and we'd all eat WAYYY too much!
The kids all decided to play "Hide & Seek",,, Being so young: I just plopped myself down in patch of hay that had been missed during the second cutting.
By I found myself eyeball to eyeball with a HUGE patch of Spyders!!
They say that When I came out of that patch: I was about eight feet in the air, and sounding like the local Fire Siren!

That's at the end of September... although I no longer like being reminded of it's return each year.

I'm pretty sure that if I was still in diapers: I'd have left a pretty good amount of whatever I was filling them with: in the air over that patch of creepy-crawlies!

Don't know about the Challengers but our Gemini came with a plastic extension device for the nozzles. I have only had to use it once.

Rumor has it that a guy saw a spider eating a gator that had been caught in its web over in the glades.

Leaving motorhome plugged in to 120 while not in use. Or should a battery tender be used instead?

Mine stays plugged in 24/7 with one A/C on 78 degrees during summer. Keeps everything up and charged, "happy hour in the camper" beer cold and eliminates moisture which can lead to disastrous mildew. Always ready to jump and run.

Either choice will work: although the 120 plug gives you power to more features in the rig!
